Important Tech in Vacation Rentals

It is easy to get lost in the sea of smart home tech for Vacation Rentals. Here are the 5 items of technology that we recommend in a VR to keep your guests safe

“Randy Fixed our WiFi”

It is a really great day when you can combine your professional skill set with your giving spirit and favourite hobby. Randy, our CTO, and I have had the privilege of doing just that this summer. I have been involved in an event called The BIG SWIM since 2013, and Randy since 2014. This 16KM+ ocean swim from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island fundraises to support a charity called Brigadoon Village, an incredible charity that provides camp programming for children with chronic illnesses and other life challenges. The BIG SWIM swimmers have raised more than $1 million for Brigadoon Village, which translates to around 1,000 campers attending this amazing facility.

WiFi Challenges in Vacation Rentals

Arriving in downtown Toronto was an amazing experience for me as I have not been there before and was very excited to see the night skyline.  I must say, Toronto did not disappoint as the views were spectacular.  In the city for business, I was lucky enough to have friends who live in Mississauga so they were happy to show me around and get me to my vacation rental.

Who needs a Certified Network Wireless Administrator?

I recently had the privilege of attending a Certified Network Wireless Administrators (CNWA) course, provided by Certified Network Wireless Professionals and hosted by Tech Data Canada.  At the very start of the course, the instructor informed us that by the time the course was finished, we would be “amazed that WiFi ever works at all”.  He wasn’t wrong.

Review of WiFi Now Conference

SolutionInc attended this years’ WiFi Now conference in DC and it was a fantastic event.

There seemed to be some up and commers in the in the hardware, network monitoring and cloud gateway space there as vendors, and most of the presentations were great to take in and very informative.

WiFi VS Internet: Is There a Difference?

We run into a lot of operators and management companies that blend WiFi and Internet into one service and assume it’s all the same thing. This works ok for your home connection if your tech needs are simple; but when running a business it does not cut it. Your guests expect a flawless experience and your business needs a network dedicated to running your business. As a property manager, operator, or developer, you have to look at your technology, and specifically your WiFi/Internet a bit differently as you grow.
